We have been regular customers at this charming restaurant for many years - and have never had a meal that was less than excellent. The service has varied, but is now spot-on: a perfect combination of efficiency, attentiveness and friendliness. There is enough variety on the menu to ensure that there is something for everyone and the food is perfectly... More

Everything about this restaurant is nothing short of excellent..the location...the welcoming, friendly and efficient staff... but most of all, the food. My wife is a very accomplished chef in her own right and so we tend to go for the 'fine dining' type of restaurants to treat ourselves. We both really love fish and seafood in general and the menu...

One of three restaurants in the same group, each very well decorated and serious about their offering. This is the only one on a ship. The evidence is that the French, who own and staff all three restaurants, still have a certain je ne sais quoi when it comes to what fine dining is all about. Not always in evidence... More

I have eaten several times at Mariners and am ambivalent about it. I have had one or two very good meals but often I have found it to be only average. On this most recent visit I was left feeling disappointed. I love mussels so was very happy to order them as a starter. The dish was extremely bland with... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of having our wedding dinner at the Mariners, the maître D' Denis, Chef Frederic and the staff were absolutely amazing and made us feel very welcome on the boat. The service was impeccable and professional and the food was just delicious and beautifully presented. The weather was beautiful and we were able to... More

We have been to this restaurant several times over the years but our lunch time visit on Saturday 5 October proved very disappointing and certainly not up to the usual standard we have come to expect. We opted for the very reasonably priced set menu with one of the party choosing the warm chocolate tart for dessert and planning the... More

My family had a truly memorable meal here. We have eaten in the sister restaurants of The Great House, Lavenham and Maison Bleue in Bury St Edmunds so thought we would make it the trio. The ship has a charm all of its own and with the twinkling lights of the marina sets the tone for an enjoyable evening. We... More
